interesting. i love those strong words by steve young. and the national football league player's association is is also getting involved, they say . . . and that is certainly what it looks like by the way as far as fans are concerned. sean spicer tweets out . . . and there are two more fans of the nfl that feel that way. we and ben mankiewicz. ben joining us now. ben, people say i don't know are they getting paid too much too a little? how do i know? >> first of all what do we care what they are getting paid. this is a $9 billion a year industry. the starting salary is $78,000, the average looks close to be $8,000 a week. compare that to the averages of some other sports they all get more money. >> cenk: i know they work a shorter year -- >> yeah less gruelling. >> cenk: no question be for christ's sakes the nfl has paid $110,000. what is their ratings? >> the nfl obviously being the most powerful and significant sports league in the world, a giant marketing tool needs to know that the ref -- we have seen that if you don't have quality referees you diminish the product.
